    They have nothing else to pride themselves with.

    It's pretty easy to refute the statement:

    Almost every mammal gives birth.  Dogs give birth.  As abilities to go, yeah, it's traumatic to the body, but no, it isn't special.

    What happens AFTER birth IS pretty unique.  Each kid has his or own upbringing and usually the mother is an integral part of that.  In cases where a kid goes bad and a mother is an integral part of the kid's upbringing, why doesn't she also get her share of blame?

    Being a good mother is incredibly difficult.  Being a good parent generally is incredibly difficult.

    Being able to have a baby is natural.  I didn't say it was comfortable, nor did I say it was fun.  But at least in this century, in the West, it is a CHOICE.  And if you don't want to take on the discomfort (aka pain), you don't have to (at least for now).

    Contrary to popular opinion I dont think shitting a crying bag of skin makes you anything. It is following up on the responsibility of childbirth that makes you worthy of respect. 

    Lot of people nowadays aren't parents their just pumping out units that they cant manage

    Because they are :) You wouldn't be born if it weren't for your mother ( a women) giving birth to you, they go through so much for 9 months to bring a life to this world, therefore, they are goddesses, period.

    Because they carried the child in their womb for almost a year.

    In fairness, many who never give birth sometimes think this too. In fact having to raise kids tends to lessen the amount of time one has to assume apotheosis.

    Why are men so resentful that women can do something that men cannot do?
